Emergency First Aid

The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 legislation requires employers to ensure appropriate personnel are in place to provide first aid to employees. The Emergency First Aid at Work course is a one-day course designed for employees who want to become an accredited first aider, who would like to learn the basics of first aid and who may need to use these skills in an emergency either work-related or not.

“Great balance between enjoying the course and communicating what was important. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, especially lunch! Great value.”
